Editorialby Tom Starland, Editor and PublisherCOMMENTARYWhen You’re Almost In, But PeopleThink You’re Out, But You Still Might BeLast month I talked about getting ourfirst ad from the Triangle area of NC andour hopes that it was just the first of many.Well, it turns out it wasn’t really our first- way back in the late 1990s we had afew ads from that area for a short periodof time. And when I say the Triangle I’mthinking Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill orChapel Hill, Durham, Raleigh - if you likeit that way. We hadn’t had any ads fromany of those cities in over 10 years andnone since we started our new electronicversion of the paper.But it turns out maybe we did. Ireceived an e-mail from one of the artistsat the Hillsborough Gallery of Arts inHillsborough, NC, and they wanted meto know that they think of themselves aspart of the Triangle area. Hillsborough isthe county seat of Orange County, homeof Chapel Hill. Hillsborough is just a shortdrive from Chapel Hill and Durham. I’msure I’d get the same logic from folks inCarrboro, Cary and Wake Forest - thatthey’re part of the Triangle too. All are locatedin Orange, Durham or Wake Counties.But I asked in my return e-mail the$64,000 question - do the folks in Raleigh,Durham and Chapel Hill feel that Hillsboroughis part of the Triangle? That’sthe real question and knowing how somefolks are about staking out their territoryin the art world, my bet was that none ofthe big three would want to share. It’s thesame everywhere. There is never enoughpublicity, funding, or audience to satisfyeveryone so competition is fierce and noone really wants to share - unless made to.And, in some ways I don’t blame them.But, from now on, Carolina Arts willnow consider any art community in thosethree counties to be part of the Trianglearea of NC. Unless they contact us andsay they want no part of it. We’re here todo all we can for our supporters, wheneverwe can.It’s not the first time this has come up.A gallery in Fuquay-Varina, NC, asked tobe listed with galleries in Raleigh in ourgallery listings. Galleries in Davidson,NC, Cornelius, NC, and Pineville, NC,want to be listed with Charlotte, NC, galleries.It goes the other way too. Some bedroomcommunities, which will go nameless,have asked us to take them out of thegallery listings of a larger community andgive them a town or city heading of theirown. The only problem we’ve had is whenall the galleries involved don’t agree onwhere they want to be included. And, I’veyet to have anyone call (knock on wood)complaining that some gallery is includedin one grouping and they don’t belongthere and they want me to move them out.Here’s something we wish peoplewould call us about - galleries that youfind in our gallery listings that are nolonger open. We get those calls occasionally,but not often enough. I guess the lastthing on a gallery owner’s mind whenthey have to close their gallery is to call usto inform us to remove their gallery fromour listings.Of course there was one time when anunhappy artist who was asked to leavea gallery called to tell us that the gallerywas closing. It’s a good thing we check allthose cases out before we remove anyone.We verify all info about closed galleriesbefore we remove them.There was also a case where an advertisercalled to tell us they were closing andwe needed to stop running their ad. Sowe stopped running the ad and removedtheir gallery listing and I stopped goingthere to deliver papers (back in the day).Six months later I turned the wrong wayand ended up going by that gallery andit looked like they were open. I calledto find out what the skinny was and gotsomeone who worked there instead of theowner and when I asked that I thoughtthey were closing - that employee almostfainted and asked me what was up.I told them that six months ago theowner told me they were closing and topull their ad. Turns out the owner justdidn’t feel good about telling me to pullthe ad as they were having to tighten theirbudget. I was amazed that it was easier totell me they were closing instead of tellingme they were cutting back on advertising.Hey, we all have to deal with the bottomline, but don’t tell me you’re closingif you want to stop advertising or have to.Tell me your ads were so successful thatyou just don’t need them anymore. Tellme your ad is working so well that youmight have to hire more staff and you justcan handle managing twenty employeesat a time. Tell me you didn’t like my lastcommentary, but don’t tell me you’reclosing. That can cause a chain reaction ofevents that could eventually lead to yourreal closing.You can even tell me you just don’tthink your ad is working for you. Believeme, we’ve heard that a few time over thelast 25 years - many times after someonejust ran their ad one month.Unlike some military commandersthink - we can handle the truth. And,we’re here to please.So, the lesson of the month is - lookto see where your gallery is listed in ourgallery listings to make sure you’re whereyou want to be and tell us if you’re notwhere you want to be. And, while you’rechecking the listings out, if you see a gallerylisted that is closed - e-mail or call usto let us know - we might need to removesomeone. You could also let us know thatwe’re not listing a gallery that we should.Remember - the more galleries there arein one area the more attractive that areawill be to visitors who are looking to getthe most out of their gas money.I’m not saying cars and art are anythingalike, but car dealers cluster for areason. People like to shop around, theyhave different tastes, and they like convenience.The NumbersOnce again this last month we sawover 81,000 downloads of the Feb. 2012issue of Carolina Arts. That’s now threemonths in a row where we had more than80,000 downloads in a month. There wasno surge in downloads in the bottom halfof the month, but we did set one recordduring that time. On Saturday, Feb. 25,2012, we set an all time record for visitsto our website in one day with over 4,200visitors. The day before and the dayafter saw less than 3,000 visitors. Whatattracted so many to the website on thatSaturday? Your guess is as good as mine.continued on Page 45 Page 4 - Carolina Arts, March 2012Table of Contents


Mint Museum in Charlotte,NC, Features New ExhibitionFocused on Story Re-tellingThe Mint Museum in Charlotte, NC,will present the exhibit, Fairytales,Fantasy, & Fear, on view in the GorelickGalleries, located at the Mint MuseumUptown, from Mar. 3 through July 8,2012.The exhibition brings together thework of several internationally acclaimedartists, including Mattia Biagi, MarkNewport, Kako Ueda, Tom Price, andKate Malone. Known for his work in tar,Italian artist Biagi reinterprets icons oflost innocence, such as Little Red RidingHood and Cinderella’s carriage. Newport,an American fiber artist, creates hand-knitacrylic re-creations of heroes’ costumes,which combine their heroic, protective,and ultra-masculine yet vulnerablepersonas. Ueda, a Japanese paper artist,uses unsettling imagery, such as insectsand skeletons, in her detailed cutouts torepresent the fine line between beauty anddecay. Price, a British furniture designer,is known for his use of polypropylenetubing to create spiky shapes that evokeforms from the natural world. And Malone,a British ceramic artist, is knownfor her sensual, Neo-Baroque forms andmastery of crystalline glazes.This thematic exhibition, generouslysupported by the Mint Museum Auxiliary,also includes selections from the Mint’spermanent collection and loans fromprivate collections. The installation willfeature high-tech use of theatrical pieceson flat-screen televisions and cellphonetour commentary provided by the artists.“This exhibition is a look at contemporaryart that explores the world of magicalstories, imagination, and fear in worksranging from clay sculpture to cut paper,”said Annie Carlano, the Mint’s Directorof Craft + Design. “The sources ofinspiration for these artists also interestedthe Surrealists – the dream world, theoccult, fairytales, oral traditions, esotericreligions, and the world of the unconscious.This exhibition is especially timelybecause of the resonance of fairytales, sciencefiction and fantasy, and horror storiesin current popular culture.”Dr. Kathleen V. Jameson, the President& CEO of the Mint, said the exhibitionfits with the museum’s mission of alwaysseeking ways to be relevant to the largercommunity. “We are pleased to bring yetanother exhibition to the public that explorespopular themes and also reveals innertruths about human nature,” she said.Kako Ueda.

A receptionwill be held on Mar. 30, from 6-9pm.Work by Jay ZinnThe love of patterns developing fromnatural organic materials is what drewZinn to developing art through the oxidationprocess on black iron steel. Afterspending 20 years in décor and illustrativeart, he tired of the confining details andbegan to explore the free-flowing techniqueof abstract.As Zinn began to experiment with oxidationpatterns of rust on recycled steel,intermingled with colors and design, thepossibilities became endless. He applieslayer upon layer of oxidized patterns withdifferent chemicals, acrylic colors, andglazing, and then finishes it off with fourlayers of polyurethane to prevent furtheroxidation and create a beautifully polishedand stunning piece. No two pieces arealike because each develops in its ownway through Zinn’s creative eye for whatpops. The process requires weeks to allowthe oxidation and layering effect until theright image occurs. Then complementingcolors and layers of glazing are addedto flow with what the evolving imagedemands.Zinn discovered art on oxidized steelThe Civic & Cultural Arts Center ofPineville in Pineville, NC, will present,Beyond the Curve II: Celebrating Women’sVision, an art exhibit featuring the works ofregional female artists, on view in the MainGallery from Mar. 2 - 31, 2012.

Not by Words AloneRenditions by Ralph Turturro 40” x 69” mixed media on canvasRecent PaintingsbyRalph Turturro2 March - 31 March, 2012Elder Gallery 1427 South Boulevard Charlotte, NC 28203 704-370-6337 www.elderart.comElder Gallery in Charlotte, NC,Offers Works by Ralph TurturroElder Gallery in Charlotte, NC, willpresent the exhibit, Not By Words Alone,featuring paintings by New York artist,Ralph Turturro, on view from Mar. 2 - 31,2012. A reception will be held on Mar. 2,from 5-8pm.Turturro’s love of writing and paintinghas become the basis for this exhibition.“Ralph’s work screams ‘New York’ tome,” says Larry Elder who has chosenthe artwork for Turturro’s debut show inCharlotte. “His paintings are raw, earthy,textured portrayals of elements that comprisehis life as a painter and writer whoseroots run deep into New York.”Work by Ralph TurturroTurturro was born in 1957 to a typicalItalian family with aunts, uncles, andcousins all living close by in Queens,New York. As a teenager he ventured intostand-up comedy with his cousin, actorJohn Turturro.Like his father, who was an impersonatorand performer, Ralph and John Turturropicked up his love for mimicry andjoined their family on an artistic journey.His cousin, Aida Turturro played Janiceon the acclaimed HBO Series The Sopranos.Her father, Dominick, converted anold synagogue into a painting studio withPage 6 - Carolina Arts, March 2012three floors of balconies and filled it withlarge abstract paintings, launching his ownlove for art and becoming Ralph’s artisticmentor.Ralph’s family came from a time, soonafter the war, when Americans were thegood guys and all things were possible.The Turturros played out that Americandream and succeeded in their own specialways. Ralph painted furiously as a childand today is an art teacher and an accomplishedabstract painter.Turturro’s life in New York hasrewarded him with the gift of discovery.While exploring his boyhood neighborhoodin Brooklyn he became acutelyaware of the physical world around himand the colors, textures, and light thatmade up his world. His observations led toa quest to break through the temporal, illusiveflash of the physical world to reach aplace that was more real.The artist’s educational path took himto the University of Wisconsin and thenon to Pratt Institute where he received hisMFA degree. He completed post graduatework at Queens College and BrooklynCollege.“My paintings express my continuallyevolving response to everything I comein contact with - people, conversations,music, film, poetry, literature, street signs,nature, and art” says Turturro.A second exhibition of Turturro’s artwill be held at the Gallery at Carillonlocated in the Carillon Building on TradeStreet in Charlotte’s center city. Thisexhibition is open to the public and willon display from Mar. 5 through June 30,2012.The Elder Gallery at Atherton Mill inCharlotte is also presenting The PlanskyCollection: A Lifetime of Painting by CarlPlansky, on view through Mar. 31, 2012.Historic Atherton Mill is the site for thecontinued above on next column to the rightTable of Contentsfirst showing of selected paintings anddrawings from the Plansky Collection.Visit (www.elderart.com) for hours ofoperation and more details.For further information check our NCCommercial Gallery listings, call the galleryat 704/370-6337 or visit(www.elderart.com).Don’t see what you’re looking for?Your ad for your gallery or art spacecould be on this page.The deadline each month to submit articles,photos and ads is the 24th of the monthprior to the next issue.

Local artists beganexploring new ideas and pursued artisticopportunities in and out of the state, andSouth Carolina college and universityart departments began - and continue - tobring in artists from across the UnitedStates, to teach and exhibit their work.”This practice brought in new ideasabout how to approach the making of art.In other instances, South Carolina natives,influenced by other artists and exploringtheir own ideas, pursued artistic opportunitiesoutside of the state. Their influences,such as the Southern landscape,tidal creeks and marshes, plus a variety ofcultural experiences, remained influentialin their work.“Many influences worked togetherto bring South Carolina art to the pointit is today,” Matheny said. “This exhibitionreflects the journeys made by theseindividuals, the art they created, and theirinfluences along the way.”“The exhibit includes many large scaleworks of art on canvas, as well as mixedmedia work that pushed the boundaries,and our perceptions, of how abstract artis perceived,” said the curator. “Museumguests will be surprised and inspired bythe work of these important artists.”www.ArtXpress.comThe Structure, by William Halsey, an oil on masonitework from 1949, courtesy of theGibbes Museum of Art.

Riis was alsoan original founder of the Museum ofDesign Atlanta.Executive Director, Karen Watsonstates that the gallery is excited to be presentingsuch a large and varied exhibitionof Riis’ work. She says it began in 2009when Jon Eric Riis’ work was featuredin the exhibition Tradition/Innovation:American Masterpieces of Southern Craftand Traditional Art that was at the SumterCounty Gallery of Art in September of2009. Riis was also a presenter for “TalkingThreads: A Quilt & Fiber Arts Symposium”in conjunction with the Tradition/Innovation exhibition.

The gallery immediately approachedhim about a possible show andhe was very receptive to the idea.Work by Jon Eric RiisConsidered by many to be the nation’sleading contemporary tapestry artist, Riis,who is from Atlanta, GA, has perhapsmore than any other artist, taken theancient craft of hand-woven tapestry tothe level of important contemporary fineart. Often imbuing his subject matter withhighly critical social and cultural ideas,such as the Iraq war, Riis’ provocative artis as important for its content as it is for itsstunning execution and unmatched technicalprowess. The meticulous works aresupremely crafted, astonishing in visualeffect and profound in concept.Riis’ work is informed by his researchinto the historical textiles of Pre-ColumbianPeru, Imperial China, and Russianecclesiastical vestments. Many of thetapestries in the Sumter exhibition are inthe form of a “universal coat,” or religiousBuddhist vestments. This form offersmany opportunities for reflection on thehuman condition.Riis states, “clothing is our ‘secondskin’. A coat can be interpreted as a containerfor all of Humanity’s positive andnegative attributes, protection, warmthand I play with the hidden aspects of this,contrasting the exterior with the interior.”Watson sees the jacket as a “storyboard”, illustrating a narrative on the outsideof the coat that, when opened revealsa startling conclusion - often addressingcontemporary socio-political contentwithin the hidden, equally detailed interiorof each piece which is often at odds withthe viewer’s expectations.800-535-5908Rebecca A.T. Stevens of The TextileMuseum in Washington, DC, states,“Whether questioning race relations,religious obsession, folk tales, or culturalsymbols, Riis uses myth and historicaltextiles to investigate contemporary issuesof beauty and personal identity and usesthese references to remind the viewer ofthe continuity of humankind’s strugglesand accomplishments. His works are luxuriousand intriguing, yet the subject matteris often unsettling and unexpected. He hascertainly pushed traditional tapestry intothe 21st century one thread at a time.”The art of tapestry weaving waspracticed by ancient peoples from Egyptto Peru. Tapestry weaving emerged inEurope as an important art form in theMiddle Ages, when large tapestries servedpractical and aesthetic functions such asinsulating hangings and moveable interiordecorations. In Asia, tapestries were generallyused for smaller accessories, functionalobjects and fine apparel. Riis’ workhas been influenced by Russian ecclesiasticaltextiles, Russian icons and imperialcourt costumes from the Qing dynasty inChina (1644-1911). In 2006 Riis had theopportunity to spend time in Eastern Tibetand many of the works in this exhibitionreference this experience.Work by Jon Eric RiisRiis states, “I try to link my work tothe ancestral and universal textile tradition,using historical iconography toaddress contemporary themes. Much ofmy work abounds in references to myths,beliefs and the material culture of the past.I want my work to take on an aura of thesacred and ceremonial and above all theluxurious and sensual. I often embellishmy tapestries with precious materialscontinued on Page 12Carolina Arts, March 2012 - Page 11

USC- Beaufort in Beaufort,SC, Features Works by TheArt Beyond Tradition GroupUSC- Beaufort in Beaufort, SC, ispresenting the exhibit, New Vibrations,featuring abstract works by 12 membersof The Art Beyond Tradition group, onview through Apr. 30, 2012.The artists, who reside on Hilton HeadIsland, Bluffton, Beaufort and Columbia,SC, are known throughout the area fortheir unique style and exquisite artwork.They include painters: Deanna Bowdish,Cindy Chiappetta, Marilyn Dizikes, JoDye, Vickie Jourdan, Mary Jane Martin,Mary Sullivan, Joan Templer, Arla CrumlickWible, Caroll Williams and Irene K.Williamson; and sculptor Sharon CollingsLicata.Work by Vickie JourdanVickie Jourdan’s Attitude, where boldreds and blended hues ring true to theirtitle, is a painting that says as much aboutthe artist as the observer. Far from subtle,it asserts itself dramatically.Sharon Licata works in stone. Hersculpture entitled Thunder shows anamazing flexibility of design. The stoneseems to swirl and wrap around itselfforming an open space that defies credibility.Mary Jane Martin has produced apainting titled Java. Colorful patches appearto be escaping from the muted background,whereas in Grounded, a mutedpalette is used, playing to texture and text.Following some of the conceptsof color-mass abstract painting, ArlaCrumlick Wible has produced studies inBrown, Browns and Greens, while IreneK. Williamson brings a collage entitledInterrupted as well as an abstract paintingtitled Out of Control. In this second painting,the vigorous swirls of color and madsplashes and dashes of paint appear to beout of control, yet the total environment isthat of a carefully controlled painting.Caroll Williams describes her artas 2-1/2 D. Her wall mounted artworkuses found objects and “turns them intosomething quite different from theiroriginal use”. Her philosophy is to do aslittle as possible to these objects: “In thatway, the qualities that originally attractedme to them - the weathering, the patinaof age, the quirkiness - continue to shinethrough.” This can easily be seen in herpieces titled Transported and Grids, Boxesand Drawers.Williams says, “In the late 70s, I beganthe study of graphic design which led toa satisfying 30 year career. After my husband’sretirement to Hilton Head Island,and my own semi-retirement, I finally hadthe time to experiment with making artfrom the kinds of materials I’ve alwaysloved and collected: peeling, paintedboards; rusty objects; staircase spindles;ephemera of all varieties.”The Art Beyond Tradition has beentogether and showing its work as a groupsince 2008. It has held two successfulshows at the Arts Center of CoastalCarolina and most recently at the CoastalDiscovery Museum on Hilton HeadIsland, SC.“We are so pleased to be holding ourcurrent show at the University of SouthCarolina Beaufort,” says Irene K. Williamson,manager of the Art BeyondTradition group and one of its artists. “It isimportant to find venues that enhance theboldness of the art and provide the spacefor the 12 members of the group to displaytheir work.”“We welcome Art Beyond Traditionand their current show, New Vibrations,”says Bonnie Hargrove, USC-Beaufort gallerydirector. “The university is pleased topresent this fine body of work.”Located in the heart of the CarolinaSea Islands, the University of South CarolinaBeaufort (USCB) is a senior institutionof the University of South Carolinasystem serving the southeast coast ofGeorgia and South Carolina.

Wrangle’s photographs gobeyond the still life moment to suggest atableau or scene, an interruption within anarrative, especially in the photographsof tools suspended in nature, DoubleBarrow Suspension or Frozen Axe #2. Allthe photographs depict human interruption,inversion and control of nature. Allof Wrangle’s “Interruptions” are rich andelegant in the still life tradition.Wrangle has exhibited widely includingFotoFest, Lawndale Art Center andRudolph Projects/Artscan Gallery.

She beganphotographing her daughter after herdivorce, being interested in the awkwardmoments they shared as her child played.Gaillard was interested in how the divorceplayed out in both of their lives in subtleand startling ways. As she contemplatedher daughter from behind windows,curled in a corner, or in the shadow of herhouse, she wondered, “Who is this personthat lives with me?” She was intrigued bythis half-life they shared due to custodyobligations.Work by Polly GaillardConstance Thalken’s work involvesphotography, video, sound, performanceand installation. The overarching concernof her work is the complexities of loss.She often uses animal imagery and referencesto the natural world to address ideasabout death, transformation and the cyclesof life.continued on Page 17

While she leaves a constellationof clues as to who the womanis, and what she’s done, Snelling presentsno answers. In a sense, the mystery of thestory becomes the core of an exhibitionthat never reaches a full conclusion.”In Woman on the Run, Snelling evokesa world of black & white Hollywoodcrime thrillers where the lines betweengood and evil becomes tantalizinglyblurred. Within the exhibition space Snellingcreates a world unto itself, whereaudiences will walk through pieces of acity and an abandoned motel room. Thewoman is the protagonist, and the questionremains what did she do and did shereally do it?Snelling builds sets of all scales, fromtoy model to lifesize, that map the seedy,but unmasked sides of cities across America.This exhibition brings cinema to life,and invites the viewer inside to navigate aworld of femme fatales, gritty theatre, andcontinued above on next column to the rightTable of Contentsthe questions of female representation infilm.

The bodies of some of his vesselsare formed of clear borosilicate glass withcolor being reserved for ornamentation,stems, and handles. The Clarity emphasizedthe sense of fragility, while the formleads to a feeling of strength. Roger’s vesselsare precise and impossibly thin. Theperfect shapes of his paper-walled gobletbowls and bottles are a testimony to hisextremely high skill level.

Her only ‘plan’ is to create an initialchaos, then to impose order on that. Theprocess moves itself along, taking unexpectedturns as various shapes and colorsare added to the equation. Out of a successionof layers an image emerges.metal, wire, rivets, fasteners, reclaimedmaterials, as well as other more traditionalmeans of expression, to draw us to thecore of her personal expression: an affinityfor outsider/visionary art, its bold straightforwardapproach.Work by Fritzi Huber“I go to work with a constant streamof ideas and creative energy. My processis playful and inventive; I enjoy thechallenge of using reclaimed materialsto create an image,” says Connolly. “Thesubject is irrelevant. Whether an animal, abird, a person or a landscape - I bring myinterpretation to the work, the subject beingsimply a point of departure - a startingpoint for the experiment to begin!”Fritzi Huber’s current work, “HomeSweet Home”, addresses not only herpersonal history of a life growing up onthe road as part of a circus family, but asan observer of what circus now has incommon with much of the outside world:the trailer. What once was a romantic lookat these homes on wheels has recentlybecome a viable housing/living option fora segment of our population in a troubledeconomy. All of the works are on and ofpaper.Huber has been a hand papermakerand mixed media artist for over 30 years.To communicate her ideas she uses thisprocess while incorporating remnants offabric, drawings, scraps of paper alongwith other mixed media to express abittersweet nostalgia. “I have a basic dialoguein my head when beginning a work,then it starts to talk back, to communicatewhat should come next.

Sparks is also involvedcontinued on Page 32Work by Elizabeth DarrowIn spite of very different outcomes totheir creative process, these three womenshare a common approach to making art inthat they allow the process to carry themalong, feeding off unexpected developmentsalong the way. Their work movestoward a resolution that is not premeditated,but rather presents itself, almostmagically, to the watchful eye. Humorexists side by side with mystery and angst,offering up a complex and ultimatelysatisfying visual experience.This openness to “what dreams maycome” may just be what these three havein common, and we might assume, whythey are friends.Becoming engaged in, and carriedalong by the process, is what making art isall about for Elizabeth Darrow. Her paintingsand collages emerge from the processWork by Michelle ConnollyDarrow works within the tradition ofAbstract Expressionism where discoverycomes through the process itself. Shestates, “I love playing with scraps of paper,experimenting with various combinations,layering colors, textures and shapes,looking for a balanced, cohesive outcome.When I’m satisfied visually, then I look tothe piece to identify itself; thus the title”.Michelle Connolly responds to findingimages in random marks on the paper,or within the picture’s surface area. Sheoften sees faces in the work as is reflectedin her recent series “Characters”.

He attaches allkinds of rusty time-worn found objectsto his burlap canvases. To complete hisworks, acrylic paint is applied carefullyaround the objects to create a particularlyvisceral effect atypical of traditional painting.Sparks says, “I like to push paintinga bit into different directions.

She usually spends oneday with one palette knife, lots of oil paintand plenty of movement. “I’ve alwaysloved the drama of the thickly appliedpaint, the texture, and the pureness of thecolors.” She paints quickly, alla prima,allowing texture and bold color to be seenwithout perfecting form. Her goal is notto reproduce a landscape or still life withprecision. Instead, she wants to translatethe creative concepts she has into an artisticimage with a fresh, contemporary feel.Orcutt was born and raised in theCarolinas. Her personal journey as anartist began in her childhood. “My fatherenrolled in art school on the GI Bill afterserving in the Navy. Although he providedfor our family through other means, henever stopped creating,” Orcutt recalls.Fond childhood memories of discussingher father’s works helped spur an earlyinterest in art.As a child, Orcutt began taking classesin ceramics and decoupage, afterwardphotography and painting classes. Shewas later employed as a decorative artistspecializing in hand painted glassware.Orcutt went on to study oil painting underJoyce Hall at The Studio and furtherdeveloped her drawing, painting andcomposition skills. She later advanced herpalette knife techniques with internationalartist James Pratt, and continued thiswork with Susan Sarback, who owns andoperates the School of Light and Color inCalifornia.Orcutt continues to upgrade her goalsas an artist while incorporating a senseof adventure.

As a child, he wouldcatch and release birds and small animals.He began drawing as a way to keep asmall part of nature with him. From 2007to 2009, he studied art at Studio Amidthe Pines in Bear Creek, PA, with JudithKeats.

A receptionwill be held on Mar. 2, from 5-8pm.Carrick’s pieces are indoor and outdoorcontinued above on next column to the rightTable of Contentsart and is quite different from most workseen in the Charleston area.Work by Wayne CarrickWayne M.A. Carrick was born inQueens, NY. His close-knit Italian-Americanfamily was deeply distressed whenhe left the fold to pursue his education inIowa where he earned an AS, BA and adoctorate focused in the fields of healthand science.Since early childhood, Carrick wouldfind himself entranced by the clouds in thesky, wishing he could create something oflike awe and beauty. It would not be untilmidlife that he could deny his yearning forcreativity no longer and began to pursuehis artistic interests in earnest. Painting indramatic, bold colors with high contrastserved him well.As a natural extension of Carrick’straining and education, using his sensesand feelings to discern how things workedtogether were very important. In a questfor answers, what he would now termTemporal Art, was born.“My work is done with chemicals thatburn on the surface of the steel to in essencecapture a moment in that cycle oflife,” says Carrick. “I have hyper-acceleratedthis process by the use of chemicals,only to halt it, and then preserve it. As youcan imagine, even with the most painstakingcare, the result is never certain.The rough, unfinished edges of the steelshow stress, burn marks and finality tothe process. It speaks of the birth of thesteel itself and the heat that is necessary towork with it!”Painstaking analysis, research and timehave expanded in the fusion of organicand inorganic color elements into thecreative process he has developed. Theblending of “hot”, fiery colors has nowbeen harnessed to add interest and contrastto the “low” of the cool metal.“As always with this work, some processesonly take but a moment, before thewindow closes permanently on the waitingcells of the metal to respond. A cruelmaster indeed to serve,” adds Carrick.“Other processes in each piece arenurtured, almost childlike, as you wouldlovingly, hopefully guide it toward maturationfor a week, and sometimes as longas a month to reach the final result. Whichat times, never comes.”Intricate “highs and lows” in the colorWork by Wayne Carrickof each piece can be observed. They havebeen planned, but cannot be relied upon.“Much like the crashing of waves on theshore, you can participate but certainlycannot control the outcome,” say Carrick.“For some, you may dabble from thesafety of the shore, but for others, if youare to participate fully, it is in the crest ofthe wave, almost crushed; this is wherethe work lives and it is most vulnerable.”For further information check our SCCommercial Gallery listings, call the galleryat 843/577-9295 or visit(www.lowcountryartists.com).

A reception will be held on Mar. 2,from 5-8pm.Work by Paul Mardikian“Terra Mater” is a tribute to Mardikin’smuse, mother earth. Influenced by thephilosophy and reflections of GastonBachelard on the imagination, daydreamsand poetry of what he calls “Earth andReverie,” Mardikian’s poetic vision of theworld is reflected in this exhibition. Hecompares the surfaces of his paintings toimaginary landscapes of his mind creatinghis own “poetic iconography.” Landscapesof the mind also carry scars and tracesof the past through memory, dreams andimagination and the inevitable erosion oftime.“I have a great interest in textures,layers and stratigraphy,” says Mardikian.“My paintings resemble an archaeologicalexcavation because they are multi-layeredand reveal themselves slowly like ajourney that unfolds through time.” TerraHalsey - McCallumStudioWilliam Halsey& Corrie McCallumBoth recipientsof theElizabeth O’NeillVerner Awardpaintings • graphics • sculpturefor the discerning collectorFor information:David Halsey 843.813.7542dhalsey917@comcast.netPaige Halsey Slade 904.223.8418PSlade@alumnae.brynmawr.eduLouise McCallum Halsey 501.650.5090louisemhalsey@gmail.comwww.louisehalsey.comMater connects with themes establishedin his previous solo shows exhibited atthe Corrigan Gallery; Totems and Icons in2008, and Palimpsest in 2010. Mardikian’spaintings are heavily inspired by histravels to places such as Australia, India,and Africa and this artist’s career as a professionalarchaeological conservator.Mardikian was born in France in 1963and spent most of his childhood nearParis. At the age of 25, while studying archaeologyand conservation science at theSchool of the Louvre and the SorbonneUniversity, Mardikian developed his ownpainting techniques and tools that he usesto convey his feelings through abstractpainting. Mardikian’s training in art restorationoffered him a precious understandingof the chemical, physical and opticalproperties of paint.Mardikian’s career in conservingarchaeological artifacts, such as those ofthe Titanic and the Hunley submarine,has fueled his inspiration. Being directlyconnected to the past, discovering andpreserving the fragile remains of ancientcivilizations, has left a mark on hisartwork. “Interpreting abstract traces ofhumanity such as imprints, traces of fire,tracks, trash, brush stokes, graffiti, andscarifications left by a human being onany given substrate are part of this iconography.Those traces, whether intentional orinadvertent, are symbolic of the temporaryphysical presence of a person in the fluxof time,” says Mardikian.In its seventh year, Corrigan Gallery isthe culmination of 23 years of experiencein the Charleston art market.

I would ask Mother if theywanted the head or the whole animal.

Thecontroversy that surrounded the BattleFlag of the Confederacy which flew defiantlyabove South Carolina’s State Capitolbuilding engenders precisely the form ofpolemic exchange in which he feels mostat ease. Quashie’s wry, ironic, and irreverentart works are especially timely, forcinghis audience to consider difficult culturalproblems which they may often prefer toavoid. In this Post-modern era, Quashie’shighly political art may be categorized as“conceptual” and “journalistic”. Artisticallyand aesthetically, much of his work isclosely allied to the ideals of the Pop-ArtMovement of the 1960s & 70s. However,the subject matter he presents is radicallydifferent from the topics explored in theearlier Pop-Art genre. What is singularabout a “Quashie” point of view? Whatdoes this Charleston iconoclast have thatdemands our notice?In this post-modern era, Quashie’shighly charged political art may be called“conceptual”. Artistically and aesthetically,much of his art is closely allied tothe ideals of the pop-art movement of the1960’s and 70’s, but the subject matteris radically different from that exploredin the earlier genre.

Operatingin the tradition of the avant-garde,Quashie challenges status quo social andcultural assumptions. His works oftenplay upon various popular stereotypesand ridicule irrational cultural assumptionsin order to trigger an awareness ofour personal limits in understanding eachother’s daily life experiences. Functioningthrough the use of positive “social” anger,fed by his frustration with the vision ofthe masses, a vision which he hopes tohelp re-shape and determine, Quashie useshis artwork to raise questions that involvescrutinizing the power bases of our socialsystem, causing us to examine our collectivepolitical perceptions. Quashie’sworks challenge us to be more thoughtful,expressive, and aware.Quashie’s artworks face off againsthard to handle issues of culture, politics,and race with a self-conscious awarenessthat often offends (or at least disturbs)blacks, whites and “others”; he discriminateswith equality and equanimity.Quashie is equal to the hard questions thathe raises, but often the issues are camouflagedin pop-culture imagery and a formof Warholesque flashiness which confoundsas it derides the spectator.

It was there that hislifelong love for art re-emerged. After hisdischarge in 1987, he made the decisionto pursue an art career. Showing steadygrowth, his art career ended abruptly in1995 after an exhibition was censored.Frustrated with the art world, he abandonedart, moved West and landed a job asa comedy sketch writer on Mad-TV.

A recep-Page 40 - Carolina Arts, March 2012tion will be held for Primaeval on Mar. 30,from 6-9pm.For her contributions to Ebb & Flow,Michelle Yellin painted a series of smallwatercolors based on time spent on TybeeIsland, GA, last fall. “I took a series ofphotographs as the tide was going out,”Yellin explains. “Each painting is basedcontinued above on next column to the rightTable of Contentson a singular moment as the light fadedfrom the sky, and the water ebbed awayfrom the shore. The water, ebbing andflowing, felt like a breath moving in andout, both unique and infinite.”Work by Chris GraebnerGlass artist Susan Hope has beenexperimenting with multiple layers ofglass, building an image one layer at atime. Her piece for Ebb & Flow, she says,“is a multi-layered piece of glass with thesimple image of a little sailboat on a rollingsea.” But the image is not as simpleas it might appear. For Hope, it representsboth creative inspiration and experimentation.“Inspiration is elusive,” Hope says.“The ebb and flow of ideas is muchlike the movement of the sea. It is bothhere and there - a delicate balance,” sheexplains, adding “experimentation is thepractical application of inspiration, andit too seems to ebb and flow with thesuccess or failure of the process. Sometimesthe ideas are too big for the currentmoment and are just below the surface, asare the fish swimming below the tiny boat,symbols of ideas eager to be born.”Lynn Wartski, who works with copperand found objects, has stretched herimagination and use of materials with amobile that represents a school of jellyfishmade of recycled soft drink bottles. SaysWartski, “finding inspiration for Ebb &Flow came easily, as I often turn to naturefor inspiration, and sea life has figuredinto that inspiration from time to time.”For Kim Wheaton, the theme of thegroup show inspired her to work on an abstractpiece, something new for her. “Mypiece for this show is a triptych of creams,aquas, and blues that evoke a shorelineor waves,” she says. “Rather than thinkingliterally about waves, I concentratedon the process and the idea of movement.I used fluid acrylics on top of texturedpaper and let the paints actually ebb, flow,drip and merge across the canvas. So the“ebb and flow” is the natural process ofthe paints, rather than trying to make apreconceived image,” Wheaton explains,adding, “I like this process so much that Iam going to continue experimenting withfluid acrylics.”Painter Ellie Reinhold, photographerEric Saunders, and metal sculptor LynnWartski each interpret their relationship tothe timeless and elemental at a new showtitled Primaeval, which opens Mar. 26,2012, at the Hillsborough Gallery of Arts.Work by Ellie ReinholdReinhold says the show’s themeclicked with her immediately, becauseher images are metaphors for what isprimaeval in the psyche. “Each piece inthis show is a visual riff on a number ofconcerns,” Reinhold explains, “includingthe brevity of our lives, our lives in thecontext of our human ancestry, how wedeal with the losses we all face in life, theburden that our emotions can be - especiallywhen they are new to us - and manyother things that I can’t put into words.”Reinhold works both figuratively andcontinued on Page 41

Those who admire herwork often refer to it as “soul work,” “artyou can feel in your gut,” and “dreamscapes.”Reinhold says she takes her inspirationfrom her own emotions and paraphrasesa quote from writer Alice Walker: “If youdelve deeply enough into yourself, you arebound to rise up in other people.”“The creative process is like meditationfor me,” Reinhold says. “If I stay awayfrom it too long, I lose my center. Paintinggives me a place to work through the emotionalexperiences in my life.”“When I’m photographing the landscape,I look for scenes that are primaevaland spiritual,” says Eric Saunders. “Abstractnature scenes or scenes combininghuman artifact and nature always interestme.”A pianist, Saunders says he’s inspiredby classical music and the visual arts. Arecurring theme in his photography is lightbeing reflected on water, the source of life.“Taking pride in what I do and the desireto create something unique continuallymotivates me,” Saunders adds.In thinking about the primaeval theme,Lynn Wartski reflected on the origins ofher own art. “I have always been intriguedby human faces and forms,” she says.“Two- and three- dimensional representationswere among my earliest artisticexpressions and are something I returnto, and challenge myself with, time andagain.”Wartski says she loves to experimentThe NC Museum of Natural Sciencesin Raleigh, NC, will present exhibit, NorthAmerican Endangered Turtle Series, featuringchildren’s book illustrations by BobPalmatier on view in the Museum’s NatureArt Gallery, from Mar. 2 through Apr.7, 2012.

Artspace in Raleigh, NC, Offers Worksby Amy Gross and Barry SparkmanArtspace in Raleigh, NC, is presentingthe exhibit, Microcosms/Macrocosms,featuring works by Amy Gross and BarrySparkman, on view in Gallery 2 throughMar. 31, 2012.Microcosms/Macrocosms presentsthe work of two artists exploring similarconcepts, though utilizing vastly differentmedia and techniques. Amy Gross’ twoandthree-dimensional works are stitched,sculptural fiber works, while Barry Sparkman’smixed media works incorporateprintmaking and painting techniques.Work by Amy GrossGross’ works are an attempt to mergethe natural observable world with her owninner life. Gross notes that she is “tryingto remake nature sieved through myexperiences. I’ve always been attractedand frightened by things that are in theirfullest bloom but on the verge of spoiling.There’s beauty and sadness in them,heightened by the undeniable inevitabilityof their ending in death. This fascinationand fear describes my own psychologymore than I would like to admit.”The process forces Gross to considerthat which she would rather not – theheedlessness of time, of aging, and of thestealthy undermining of illness. Workssimilar to those exhibited at Artspacebegan when some people closest to Grosswere diagnosed with illnesses that at thetime were mostly unknown. With fewsymptoms or signs, Gross began a processthat made the microscopic – essentiallythe invisible – real. Her current stitchedworks mimic both the microscopic andlife forms in our human eye scale. Theseforms grow, take over, and climb. Thoughthey diagram stages of decay and change,the different is that these forms are notcorporeal – they cannot evolve or die.Gross recognizes that making these objectsdoesn’t alter reality, but for the artist,it freezes time, if just for a little while.Gross was born and raised on LongIsland, NY, and received her BFA fromThe Cooper Union for the Advancementof Science and Art in NYC. After attendingThe Skowhegan School of Paintingand Sculpture in ME, she returned to NYand established Color Box Studio, Inc.,a design company specializing in textileand surface design, and Amy Designs,Inc., concentrating on children’s productdevelopment. Following a move to SouthFlorida in 1999 Gross began working infiber. Her pieces evolved from beaded,painted, and embroidered works on canvasto three-dimensional embellished objects.Gross’ works has been widely exhibitedincluding in Florida at the BocaRaton Museum of Art, The Donna TribbyGallery, The Armory Art Center, and18 Rabbit Gallery, as well as nationallyincluding at Three Graces Gallery and thePortsmouth Museum of Art, Portsmouth,NH, Target Gallery, Alexandria, VA, LoudonHouse Gallery, Lexington, KY, andKenise Barnes Fine Art, NY. Her work isrepresented by Watson MacRae Gallery.Gross’ work has appeared in the summer2009 issue of Fiber Arts and the winter2009 issue of Visual Overtures magazine.In 2012, her work will be included in thebotany-themed issue of HESA Inprint.Barry Sparkman uses abstraction tosuggest the sense of a subconscious universe.Lines and shapes twist and streamthrough multicolored environments tocreate the sense of a fourth-dimensionalspace accessible through the artist’simagination. The spiraling tendrils andPage 42 - Carolina Arts, March 2012wave-like forms often seem to allude toliving organisms; the ambiguous spacethey inhabit simultaneously suggests amicrocosm and a macrocosm. While hisimagery typically arises spontaneously,based upon formal or emotional impulses,more recently he has been inspired byimages from biology, particularly microbiology.Sparkman often works subtractivelywhen creating his oil paintings, layingdown paint and then scraping off linesand layers to create complex, texturedsurfaces and subtle color effects. Hisrecent monoprints have provided anothermeans for layering colors and texturesthrough the use of photo-silkscreen. Theswirling, colorful, other-worldly environmentsthat he creates are simultaneouslybeautiful and alien, even while the organicand spatial elements refer distantly to ourmore familiar, mundane world.A native of Tennessee, Sparkman wasan artist from an early age. After completinghis BFA at Middle Tennessee StateUniversity, he earned a MFA in paintingat Louisiana State University in 1989, andrecently earned a second MFA in printmakingfrom the University of Miami. Hehas held a variety of jobs while pursuinghis art career, including working on aranch in Montana and running a conveniencestore. Sparkman also has workedas a museum preparator and galleriesmanager at the Art Museum of FloridaInternational University and the LoweArt Museum at the University of Miami.He has taught at Florida InternationalUniversity, Miami and Clarion University,Pennsylvania, among others.Work by Barry SparkmanSparkman has shown his work extensively,including solo shows in Miami,Nashville, Atlanta, and Chapel Hill, aswell as group shows across the countryfrom Provincetown, MA, to Alamosa, CO.He currently works out of his studio inPhoenix, AZ.Artspace, a thriving visual art centerlocated in downtown Raleigh, brings thecreative process to life through inspiringand engaging education and communityoutreach programming, a dynamicenvironment of over 30 professionalartists studios, and nationally acclaimedexhibitions.

This exhibition expanded overlifes. The artist starts with the simplest ofideas, placing a bouquet of flowers in a jaror vase, and painting what he sees.
